While I was listening to Christy Nockels and her NEW Album "Into the Glorious." I was thinking about the things I do as a mother. Specifically I was thinking about my weaknesses that I don’t share very often. I even try to hide most of them at time. Let’s see….
I get angry and impatient and I yell to get their attention
I get angry and I spank them.
I make them wait while I finish working.
I spend 10 minutes as craft time and then say it’s time to clean up because the mess drives me insane.
I can’t cook with them because the mess drives me insane
So many people tell me that I’m a good mom and the reason they say I’m a good mom is because I care. I care about my weaknesses and that I wasn’t perfect. I try to do better every day. I pray for God to help me be a good mother.
Jesus is ever lifting me. He forgave me for all of my sins. All the sins I did before I knew Him and all the sins I’m going to do from now on. He knows my weaknesses and loves me no matter what. He helps me grow and helps me to be that mom I want to be. When I pray and spend time in him I find that I have more time to spend with the kids. I find myself more willing to be flexible. He reminds me this is where I belong.
He helps us bake in the kitchen and get really messy
He helps me to yell less and parent patiently.
He understands my imperfections and accepts me as I am.
Quoting Christy Nockels:
Jesus you are so wonderful in all Your Ways. So Wonderful.
Jesus you are so beautiful. So Beautiful
